Ethan Hawke Questions Drone Missions US Trailer for 'Good Kill'

March 20, 2015

Good Kill

"This ain't PlayStation. We are killing people." After a couple trailers for the international release of Andrew Niccol's timely drone thriller Good Kill surfaced a couple months ago, the film has finally locked down a summer release date in May. And with that comes the first US trailer for the film, showing a little more of the struggle Ethan Hawke has as a fighter pilot forced to adapt to technology and become a drone pilot. But being detached from the war physically doesn't mean there's no psychological torture for the killing these pilots do from a control room. This looks like a timely but straightforward drama. Watch it!

Here's the first US trailer for Andrew Niccol's Good Kill from ComingSoon:

Good Kill

Good Kill is written and directed by Andrew Niccol (In Time, Lord of War, Gattaca). A fighter pilot turned drone pilot (Ethan Hawke), based out of Las Vegas, fights the Taliban by remote control for twelve hours a day, then goes home to the suburbs and feuds with his wife and kids for the other twelve. But the pilot is starting to question the mission. Is he creating more terrorists than he’s killing? Is he fighting a war without end? One soldier’s tale with epic implications. January Jones, Bruce Greenwood, Zoe Kravitz and Jake Abel also star in the film which IFC Films will release in limited theaters early this summer on May 15th.

I wonder in 10 years time what we'll be using to murder each other? When it comes to tools of murder humans are ingenious. Wonder when the drone strikes will start at home?

Who says it has not already started?

Well, everybody says that technology makes us better. So, here it is to question it. But, long time will pass before enough people will start doing it ...

I like this concept. Hawke looks like he will be killing it.

Gaming has reached the next level. I think that a lot of people still like it ...

Lord of War and Gattaca. Two hugely underrated movies in my book. Will see anything this director will make. Period.

I read recently that drone pilots are leaving in droves, so much so that the Pentagon is concerned about the program, so this is a very relevant story.
